Like every other part of your home, there may come a time when you need to replace your mobile home doors. Changing out an old or faulty door is an easy and effective way to improve your mobile home’s value. Replacing doors in your mobile home helps with general upkeep and the appearance of your living space. If you live in or own a mobile home, you probably already know that mobile home doors are typically slightly smaller than the doors you find in traditional homes. That means replacing them will take a bit of attention to detail.
There are different kinds of replacement doors for mobile homes. Choosing the correct one takes a lot of the hassle out of installing it and helps to ensure you are pleased with the end result. Mobile home combination doors come with a fitted screen but buying screen doors for doors that are already installed in your home is always a possibility, as well. You also have the option of buying a mobile home outswing door or inswing door. Plus, for both inswing and outswing mobile home doors, there is the option of getting one that has a left-hand or right-hand opening.
Mobile Home Exterior Doors
Exterior doors for mobile homes have several variations for you to choose from, as well. The differences include the material an exterior mobile home door is made from, as well as the size, style, and finish.
For practicality and safety reasons, most mobile home exterior doors swing outwards. There are special hinges, however, that will allow a mobile home outswing door to swing open both toward you and away from you.
A door that swings outward provides less obstruction if you need to exit the home quickly, as in an emergency. It also offers better protection from the elements and prevents the door from being blown open by strong winds.
The fact that these doors swing outwards means you get to maximize the use of space in your home. You do not have to leave room inside the home for the door to swing. Just be sure that there is sufficient room on the outside where the door will swing as it opens.
Mobile outswing doors, such as the selection offered by Star Mobile, often have glass cut-outs in the door. This “window” in the door lets extra light into your home. Models with a slider window will let in air, too. The glass also serves as a security feature, allowing you to see who is outside without having to open the door.
Combination doors are another category of exterior replacement doors for mobile homes. As the name suggests, these doors are a combination of a screen door and a standard mobile home door.
Mobile home combination doors can be quite convenient. They allow you to take advantage of natural light from outside and let some air into your home during warmer months. At the same time, they keep out harsh weather and are much more secure than having just a screen door in place. Star Mobile has several combination doors among our selection of replacement doors for mobile homes.
The summer months are when you’ll most appreciate having a screen door for your mobile home. They keep the home ventilated, letting in both fresh air and sunshine. In doing so they can lower your home’s monthly utility costs.
Screen doors are also quite effective at keeping insects and other pests out of your home. Their other benefits include:
- An added layer of security at your front door.
- An increase in the value of your mobile home.
- Protection for your front door.
- A boost in the appearance and appeal of your home.
